Inside water leak and air conditioning

Hello,
I have a strange problem when starting the air conditioning and a certain period of operation for about 30 minutes... water starts to leak in the back of the center console :shock:
https://bmwpower-bg.net/forums/downl...6728&mode=view
most likely it's condensation but I guess it's supposed to leak somewhere? Anyone know something about the problem or know what to check?

Thanks in advance!

It sounds like your condensation drain is clogged. It's a rubber hose under the car. Near the transmission I think...you might have push a plastic rod or similar up through the drain hose to clear it.

Thank you for your answer! I tried to find any pictures or schematics of exactly where the hose is but couldn't.
Today it also leaked onto the floor in front of the passenger seat I would be very grateful if you could show me exactly where this hose is so I can try to unclog it?

The drain comes out near/over the back(near transfer case) of the front drive shaft.

Hi, thanks for the replies!
Today I found two hoses (not exactly like the picture you attached) the hoses were on both sides of the gearbox:.

I didn't want to dig into the hoses with something to unclog them so I decided to use a vacuum cleaner. I disassembled one hose and used the elbow which I connected to the vacuum cleaner hose to suck up any dirt that caused the clog.

After I removed the vacuum cleaner hose from the holes water continued to flow and also the container of the vacuum cleaner had also sucked up slightly dirty water.

So soon I'll find out if I've been unclogging the right hoses
Thank you for your help guys!
